Comment 3 – payza, rupizo, slonkit, dbs bank wallet….so long

Comment 4 – No please don’t introduce another one. Already confused which one to use.

Comment 5 – If you do the same as the others there is no space, if you are able to innovate and play bigger, there is always space for one more player.

Comment 6 – hey all have some drawbacks. The matter of fact is no one can be 100% perfect.

Comment 7 – But nowadays these company’s and banks are heading towards POS and targeting small merchants such as our daily market, grocery shops, medicine shops etc. Moving towards a solution as compact and convenient as possible. Integrating Inventory, billing, delivery, swipe all in a single device that too in a paperless model.

Comment 8 – That is what we are working on.

Comment 9 – This is insane… with so much competition… profits are negligible…

it’s these copycats that expand the market for you.

Comment 13 -big fish will always eat the small one.. momoe was acquired by shopclues in june.. and soon so many acquisition you will see in the market.. they all are actually doing the same thing.. do think theres a innovation in their idea ! if yes than what.. ?

Comment 20 – kuchh alag kro re koi! Sab same krke you cant edge past anybody… its frustrating when people ask me to make clones like these…

Comment 21 – Can you design an e wallet system in which people can put old currency notes and get back their new currency notes without standing in ques. 😂😂

Comment 22 – makemytrip money

Amazon already giving this space a twist with NO CHECKOUTS !!!…………click and brick model

Comment 23 – Where there is will there is a way, it is only that one should be able to create the market and user should feel the promise with it.

Comment 23 -Right market analysis, right product, right product marketing … should happen together

Comment 24 – Reliance is also coming with e-wallet system

Comment 25 – There’s always room …. have clear differentiation …

Comment 26 – It’s like one tv with multiple remotes !

Comment 27 – To make successful wallet one need to be less on commission charge .

Comment 28 – There is more space for e wallet. Just make a all in one e wallet app that will integrates all currently active wallets. Means for cross money sharing such as paytm to mobikwik and vice versa or there are many ideas can be implemented on ewallets you need to think differently

conclusive observation :-

There is no stopping for those who are innovative, have different approach to woo users. Cashless economic revolution has begun . (perhaps!) . More important is to have a cashless / digital wallet mindset. Cary less cash but have more data in your smartphones.   Innovative but small, big companies with good cash flow might buy – consolidation in the space is the reality ahead.

Government is also planning to give incentive and support for small business to turn into more digital transaction economy. Easy to say but hard to follow. No rural consumption of digital transaction process. Things may change but fast.

BlockChain may bring new dynamics to this space….not clear yet.

Adoption of futuristic technology is key – startup which understands the changing layer of technology may lead this space and investor would lap them fast.

All in all – it is a good story in making.

Cake is a symbol of celebration , fun and the perfect way to make any event memorable.

Cake as a food is available possibly at every nook and corner of our neighbourhood. Be it any retail channel – cake is sold in all forms there. In India we have convenient stores, departmental stores, organized retail outlets, local bakery, betel (pan) shops where cakes are sold. Cakes are a major attraction factor for many retail outlets in our country.

Cake is also sold online through various online channels by branded and local business. Online cake delivery model was an instant hit ever since it was operational in the online space. Social and online media is heavily used to promote the online cake business for some time now. Irrespective of the brand – online cake buy and sell model has proven to be a success. Other driving factors are price and convenient ordering process.

It is observed that even though both online and offline cake channels are operating, there is no aggregator business model in the online cake business space.  As per various primary research and interviews by ExpandNext (www.expandnext.com) – there are few cake or bakery franchise which keeps all types of cakes at a given point. Even branded franchises offer restricted and limited items of cakes. A customer is often forced to make decisions to buy cakes from the available cake shops that do not often provide him the wide range of choices he would love to have before placing an order.

Online channels have fewer buyers and in many cases lack of knowledge and review/suggestion of the online cake and the baker (or bakery) is limited. Hence customers buy from local stores whatever is available to them. There is a trend to buy customized, theme based picture cakes, but there are few sellers available resulting in customers having to spend more on logistics to get the cakes of their choice.

From the seller perspective – homemade cake makers do not have the right connect in the market to sell cakes. Few outsmart the social media space and make the best use of it. The number is very low and mostly limited to the large metros but in small towns it is the word of mouth that helps them to find new customers. Marketing cost is another factor which holds back these cake sellers (homemakers, hobby cake bakers or small local bakery stores), especially in small towns and cities, to make it big.
